One book for the Chirstmases to come

Glitter on the Garland and Sparkle to the Season by Helen Juliet

If I had to choose only one book for the Christmases to come, it would be Helen Juliet’s Christmas series. I think it may be a bit confusing that in the title I said “one book” and I picked two, but it’s because the second book (Sparkle to the Season) is much more like an epilogue to the first volume than anything more complex. I will explain later what I mean by that, but at first let’s check the novels. You will encounter spoilers from now on so proceed with caution.

Christmases over the time – 2019

This novella depicts some events of Talbott’s Christmas, a lonely teen in an unconventional relationship with a supernatural being calling himself Gary. The first novella – Believing is Seeing – is from Gary’s point of view, and Act II is told by Talbott. I recommend to those novellas first, then continue with this one.

Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol reloaded? Hell yeah!

Since when I was a little kid I loved Christmas novels and novellas. And as the title – not so subtlety – suggests Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol was one of my favorites. I’ve read the book countless times and watched all the films and animations. I even have read the Scrooge McDuck edition comic. So yeah, it is a love with a long history.

This novella takes place after the events of my Vietnam war novella, Lights in the Distance. So if you want the full picture about the adventures of Tommie and Charlie, I recommend to click on the title-link and start with the war-novella.

In this novella you will find some references to historical events, you might not be familiar with. If this is the case, check out the Notes section where you will find short explanations/definitions.
